THE RSPCA rehomed 769 cats in Somerset in 2020 - that's around two a day.

The charity's centres and branches are also caring for more cats than any pet with nearly 3,000 moggies coming into its care from the start of the year to the end of August.

This month marks Adoptober, when the RSPCA shines a light on the animals in its care looking for homes, and with more cats coming into the charity’s care than any other pet this means there are plenty of feline friends looking for a new home.

Cats looking for homes in Somerset include.

Grizabella, who was found as a stray in a poor state, matted and bedraggled. She was taken to a local vets and moved into the care of the team at RSPCA Brent Knoll for rehoming. She loves being brushed.

Bridgwater Mercury:

Owners will need to groom Griz regularly to prevent future matts developing. She likes human company, but does not like other cats or dogs. She is looking for a rural or semi rural home that doesn't have too many cats in the local neighbourhood for her to encounter.

Gunther isn’t used to home comforts as he has been straying for a couple of years before coming into the care of the team at Bath Cats and Dogs Home. His contact with people has been limited and he can be fearful of new people. Gunther will be happiest going to a rural outdoor home where he can have the space he wants from people and enjoy the great outdoors.

Bridgwater Mercury:

Whilst settling in, Gunther will need to be contained in an outdoor shelter such as a shed or barn. He’s not been keen on cats previously and has been known to chase them off so would be best as the only cat.

Soldier is a black and white, 10 year old, male cat. He arrived at RSPCA West Hatch Animal Centre after having his eye removed at an RSPCA clinic. Solider has feline immunodeficiency virus - this means that he cannot mix with other cats, as the virus can be spread by biting and body fluids. For this reason, Soldier is looking for an indoor home, with a secure catio or aviary style structure outside which he can access through a window or catflap to ensure he can enjoy the outside world.

Bridgwater Mercury:

Soldier has a lovely personality; he enjoys human company and spending time watching the world go by. As his eye has only recently been removed he can be wary in new situations, for this reason he would need a quiet room in the home before being introduced to the rest of the home. As he will be an indoor cat he will require lots of enrichment to keep him entertained and to prevent him from getting bored.
